I feel that fall overstayed its welcome this year with the 2-minutes-left-in-the-fourth-quarter Thanksgiving this year, and now I'm rushing to haul out the holly and trim that tree (and pray it doesn't topple under the weight of 23 years of ornament goodness). I told you last month would be hectic and then the universe was all HAHAHA YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW, GIRLFRIEND, but it looks like the busy work season is almost through and I only had to gain a few pounds and a few grey hairs to make it. Now I'm focusing all of my energy on hanging garland and tinsel.
I like a chill holiday season but I also enjoy the parties and activities that come a long with them. Our office Christmas party/ornament exchange is a few weeks away and while I generally think this place is ridiculous, it knows how to throw a damn good party. Of course I'll be checking out a few of my favorite light displays around town AND sneaking in a lot of shopping...for others...right? Yes. Mostly.
BUT BLOGLAND, lest we forget to set our DVR's and chill the wine for the holiday event of the season. No I'm not talking about the lighting of the tree in Rockefeller Plaza or Santa Claus coming to town. I'm talking about what is sure to be the ruin of a childhood favorite. Carrie Underwood in the Sound of Music "Live" special this Thursday. I'm hosting a small dinner party for friends to
Will I be live-tweeting? You bet your edelweiss.
That's all for now. Gotta go spread holiday cheer.
